MoP PvP is so gear dependent it's ridiculous.

Arenas
What more is there to say? Read the title. I haven't had the time to keep up on gear this season. Normally it's not much of an issue, my skill can make up for the lost ilevel. This season though...holy !@#$. The difference between dreadful and double upgraded malevolent is enormous. Not only is this a problem for people like me without the time to keep a main up-to-date, but for others with alts that they want to play. You are at a HUGE disadvantage if your toon got to 90 even 1/4th of the way into the season. My wow days have now come to me checking mmo-champion every day hoping, no, praying, for the 5.2 release date announcement so I can start fresh and catch up on gear. There is a reason WoW was dropped from Esports; gear, gear, gear. The farther PvP gets from winning by out playing the other team and the closer it gets to winning by out gearing the other team is when people stop having fun.

Level out the playing field a bit blizzard. IMO remove PvP gear from the game completely. Give everyone the same stats in pvp zones, and reward players with transmog gear instead of pvp gear. Make transmog gear purchasable with conq points. I know that will never happen, but it would make the pvp community so happy. PvP and PvE are played by very different people. Sure there are the few that do both at competitive levels, but the majority of the population sticks to one or the other. (not talking about casuals).

Pretending that class imbalance isn't a major problem with this game is just stupid. There is a reason why no competitive gaming circle will come anywhere near WoW and why pro gamers treat this game like a joke.

But at least you're getting rolled by a PvPer and not some illiterate dagron slayer


Definitely can't say that about too many seasons.

getting [insert "random" stun] followed by [insert normal stun] with 3 dps cds and trinkets popped at the same isn't any better

You realise that you play a monk and your class is second only to rogues in terms of stun locking, right?

Not that I disagree. But at least jump on a pally or a dk, etc before you post some junk like this.


you realize i'm not a windwalker, you also realize my class i'm posting on has zero do to with my comment and further more that is also incorrect
you realize i'm not a windwalker,


You're a healer... you realize it's the dps's job to stun lock and kill you, right?


are you this dense? go re read my first comment.

edit: since i know you won't figure it out, cd stacking and the "random" stun dr (you know that 3 sec warbringer followed by a full duration shockwave) are obnoxious and pvp breaking issues.
Basically the first season PvE gear isnt good in arena and you guys are complaining.

and yet the problems the pve created are still going on...
Cause it's so hard to arena cap with 0 rating with even just honor gear?
